What a great idea! Lighter weight than permanent fake ones, and you can change your size depending on your outfit!

Some years ago, I knitted loads of breasts for my daughter who is a midwife. She was running classes showing ladies how to check themselves for breast lumps. I used any odd colours which took the embarrassment out of it. It went down very well. Another potential use for them perhaps?

God Bless you.  I am a breast cancer survivor.  I would have loved to have one of these right after I had my mastectomy.  Since then I have had reconstruction surgery.  I will be trying your pattern for the cancer patients in this area.  Again God Bless you.

I mentioned to a friend of mine that I had seen this pattern before and she was so excited to hear that one could
be made, so I am now getting  your pattern to make for her, she will  be thrilled. Thank you so much for providing
this for soo many. God bless, Linda

Love this pattern!! Thank you so much...I can do both knit and crochet but knitting takes so much time and you have to remember what you did (purl/knit) and with a small child it's easy to forget...These also seem to work up easily so this is great!!  thank you!!!!  Also you can use cotton yarn or thread to cut down on the heat since worsted weight yarn doesn't breath very well!!

It's great that you came up with this pattern. I will try to make it as a prosthetic cover. Will give you news abou it.

Hey! Thanks so much for posting this! I'm making a set for a friend of my mom who had to have a double mastectomy. I'm also planning to form a chapter of Crochet for Cancer in my area, and I know this will be a wonderful gift for any other ladies who've had mastectomies.


So, first off... I am SOOOOOO confused about the invdec. You are working left to right????? Are you working left handed? This website: http://www.myhobbyiscrochet.com/2013/08/3-ways-of-decreasing-stitch-single.html has a tutorial for doing an invdec in back loops. (It's titled "The Third Way" on this page.) Is this the way you are describing that we need to do this stitch? If not, can you please post a video on how to do it? I see that you have some videos for some other stitches on your page.


Also, I'm making a size C cup. If I go from row 18 to row 20, skipping 19, like the instructions say, I am supposed to go from having 66 stitches to 54, but this does not work. Using the *sc 8, invdec* (or any dec), I have six stitches left at the end, making a total of 60 stitches in this row. To go from 66 to 54 stitches, the following pattern works for row 20: *sc in next 3 st, invdec, sc in next 4 st, invdec* Just wondering if I'm looking at this right or if my brain is malfunctioning again! :)


Thanks again for the pattern!! :)

I see you deleted my comment. Can you at least help with the invdec?

I have not deleted any comments - if it included a URL or image file it may not have posted. The invisible decrease is a decreased used for amigirumi. There is a great image tutorial of how to do it here: http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-single-crochet-invisible-decrease/
